The Quant – at the Old Red Lion Theatre

“‘You heard there was a killing to be made in the City.

“So you studied hard at school, got into a good university, studied some more, graduated... and, finally, landed a job at the world’s second biggest bank. But the hard work isn’t over. In fact, it’s only just begun. There’s so much to learn your head is spinning.

“Luckily The Quant is here to help.

“He’ll guide you through the complicated world of financial risk, he’ll show you how to wield weapons of financial mass destruction and he’ll make sure you know how to get out before the proverbial hits the fan.

“Just be sure to leave your soul at the door. You are not safe now; there is no more hiding; this is real life.’

“Writer-performer Jamie Griffiths brings his solo show about an investment banker to the Old Red Lion after a sell-out run at Camden People’s Theatre in December.

“Part performance-lecture, part character study, The Quant breaks down traditional stereotypes and cuts through financial jargon to take a more nuanced look at the motivations, dangers and personal costs of those who pursue a career in high finance.” – from the Old Red Lion Theatre website

This production appeared at the Camden People’s Theatre in 2013, and will shortly go to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

As seats are unallocated, I will not be making a group booking for this play. Please book your own ticket direct with the theatre. Note that this theatre is tiny, and sells out very quickly.

Please contribute £1 on arrival (to help defray the approx. £100 per annum that Meetup charges to run a group) – thanks in advance.

In the days immediately prior, I’ll circulate details of arrangements to meet before the performance. We will have drinks in the theatre pub downstairs after the play – if you would like to stay on afterward for a conversation about the play, please let me know, as I’ll consider booking a table.

    Some pieces of information which are not often in the news, other ones a bit cliche, all in all a pleasant evening.

    Hi have any details regarding meeting before the show been sent? I haven't received anything.

    July 10

    • Jane

      Hi Nicolas, as mentioned above, details will be sent in the days immediately prior. I generally leave it till a day or two before, once the RSVPs are largely final. For events that I organise, I usually meet members 15-30 minutes prior, in the theatre foyer.
